The conference helped me prepare for success on future co-op experiences. It included a student co-op panel event, which introduced me to upper-year students who were maximizing their potential in the work they are doing in business fields like tax, auditing, private equity, and consulting. It was extremely helpful learning from these upper-year students as they provided guidance on their co-op experiences and how they balanced between their role as a student and business professional. Their advice on job-searching, such as diversifying your experiences and getting involved with the community enabled me to look to the future —where do I want to be and how can I get there?
In addition to participating in professional workshops run by faculty and staff, I will also have the opportunity to put my learning into practice through actual co-op work terms. The resources at SAF make me feel confident in my abilities to succeed as a professional in the future.
